- Popular Fiction genres
- Popular Non-Fiction subjects
- Spanish language books
- Large Print books
- Children's books
- Books on Audio CD, MP3-CD, and Playaway
Materials provided through the Rotating Collections Service are intended to supplement the collections of participating libraries and are not to be a substitute for the participating library purchasing and maintaining a primary collection of library materials that meet the needs of local users. In addition to Rotating Collections, a compact disc cleaner and repair machine is available to member libraries to use at SCKLS.
SCKLS provides a collection of popular materials to Public, Academic and Special member libraries according to service guidelines. School library members are not eligible for the service.
Member libraries agree to designate a representative or representatives to provide SCKLS with up-to-date contact information.
Member libraries agree that Rotating Collections Service materials are solely for the use of its registered borrowers and Rotating Collections Service materials are not available for interlibrary loan or for deposit or bulk loan to other individuals or entities.
Member libraries agree not to change or alter any physical features of Rotating Collections Service materials.
Member libraries agree to select a representative who must be onsite at the Participating Library at the dates and times of the scheduled Rotating Collection Service deliveries.
Member libraries agree that, prior to the delivery dates and times of scheduled Rotating Collection Service deliveries, Rotating Collection Service materials will be packed in boxes provided by SCKLS or other secure boxes upon which you have affixed the provided SCKLS return address labels.
Member libraries agree to make reasonable efforts for the return of Rotating Collection Service materials loaned to its registered borrowers. In the event of lost or damaged materials the Participating Library will contact Rotating Collections Service staff regarding the status of the items.
Failure by member libraries to abide by the conditions of this agreement will result in a formal written warning from SCKLS which may serve as basis for revocation of the service. Revocation of service and its duration is at the discretion of SCKLS.
